13 MG HS 2023

MG has redesigned its flagship HS SUV for 2023 with new SE and Trophy models introduced.

The new HS offers a sharper, more aggressive appearance. This includes new bi-function LED headlights, a new grille design and a new front bumper.

At the rear, a new bumper design, revised dual exhaust outlets and LED taillights complete the styling update.

Urban Grey is also now available for the first time within the HS range, as part of seven colour choices, including solid, metallic and tri-coat options.

The new HS will now be offered in SE or Trophy specification which MG said has proved popular with UK customers when introduced on its all-electric MG4.

Both HS models are powered by a 1.5-litre, turbocharged petrol engine paried with a manual gearbox as standard, with an optional dual-clutch DCT gearbox offered on both SE and Trophy specifications.

The SE specification, priced from £23,495, includes bi-function LED headlights with front and rear sequential indicators for the first time, alongside air conditioning, satellite navigation, rear parking camera with sensors, rain sensing wipers, keyless entry and a leather steering wheel as standard.

The Trophy, priced from £25,995, includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, rear privacy glass and an upgraded 6-speaker audio system.

Both the SE and Trophy are equipped with MG Pilot, which includes Active Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Bicycle Detection, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning System, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Intelligent High Beam Assist.

MG confirmed it will continue to offer the current plug-in hybrid MG HS PHEV model alongside the new 2023 HS Petrol.
